Angel Heart

Synopsis: Harry Angel has a new case, to find a man called Johnny Favourite. Except things aren't quite that simple and Johnny doesn't want to be found. Let's just say that amongst the period detail and beautiful scenery, it all gets really really nasty.

Monsieur Cyphre and I, just by chance,

were near the clinic in Poughkeepsie.

We decided to check for ourselves,

but we got misleading information.

The run-around!

I didn't want to cause a scene,

I hate any sort of fuss.

I thought, perhaps you could

subtly and in a quiet manner...

You want me to check it out.

- Check it out!

I have a feeling I've met you before.

I don't know, I don't think so.

Do you remember

the name Johnny Favorite?

His real name was Liebling.

My only interest in Johnny

is in finding out if he's alive or dead.

May I help you?

- My name is Harry Conroy

from the National Institute of Health.

Is there

anyone in particular you want to see?

The Institute is conducting a survey

of incurable trauma cases.

I understand you have a patient here

fitting that description?

We can't let you see anyone

without an appointment.

I appreciate that,

but maybe you could check the files

and make sure I'm on the right track.

I don't want to bother anybody


Okay? Thank you.

What's the name of the patient?

- Liebling, Jonathan Liebling.

One moment please, I'll check.

Were you working here last weekend?

No, day off.

- Did you do anything nice?

My sister's wedding.

We did have a Mr. Liebling,

but he was transferred.

You sure?

- That's what it says.

And when was that?

- Years ago, in December '43.

May I take a look at this? Thanks.

Is this recent?

It's an old file.

- It's in ballpoint!

They weren't big on ballpoint in '43.

Is that ballpoint?

Well, I'll be!

They didn't have ballpoints back then?


This here

Dr. Fowler,

does he still work here?

- Just part-time, he's old.

Thank you.

Time for your evening fix?

Who are you?

How did you get in here?

Through the mailslot.

I'm a private detective.
